(The Philippine Star) - September 20, 2017 - 4:00pm

CEBU , Philippines  —  Pradera Verde Golf and Country Club kept its hot start and shot a 166, hiking its lead to 34 points over Manila Southwoods and setting a record two-day total in the 12th Philippine Airlines Ladies Interclub golf team championships at the Cebu Country Club here yesterday.

The Lubao-based squad broke par for the second straight day to assemble a 36-hole total of 331 points, the best ever halfway score in the event’s history.
Indonesian Michela Effendie fired a three-under 69 worth 57 points while Harmie Constantino had a 70 for 56 points as Pradera bettered its first round output to pull away from the reigning many-time champion Southwoods.
Kristine Torralba rounded out Pradera’s scoring with 53 points as Lorenz Kayla Nocum failed to count with 46.

Despite a record 34-point lead, Pradera captain Normandy Sto. Domingo vowed to unleash their best today.

“We hope to finish this tomorrow. We’re sending in our top guns to get the job done so that we can relax on Friday,” said Sto. Domingo who will field in Fil-Japanese Yuka Saso and Effendie in the third round.
Saso led Pradera’s charge with 59 points last Tuesday.

Southwoods, bidding for its seventh straight crown, kept Pradera within sight in the majority of the way but faded in the closing holes.
Bernie Ilas, playing for the second straight day, led Southwoods with 53 points while teammates Mikha Fortuna and Sofia Chabon added 53 and 52 points, respectively. Samantha Dizon didn’t count with 47.

In the Founders division, Alabang Country Club scored 129 points to grab the lead over Lady Eagles Australia which slipped to third place.
Alabang drew 48 points from Rita Horan, 42 from Christine Popp and 39 from Jocelyn Garcia to hike its total to 255, two points clear of Southwoods Legends.
Scoring for Southwoods Legends were Laurea Duque 46, Christine Valdehueza 45 and Marie Claire Ong 38.

After scoring a front-running 134, Lady Eagles Australia Golf wavered with a 114 for 248 total.
